Holmes was a "surprise spectator" in a Queens, New York, courtroom on Wednesday, reports Page Six. The 34-year-old actress showed up with an unknown companion to listen to the opening statements in a high-profile alleged shaken baby death case. According to the report, Suri's mom was wearing a conservative outfit and had on no makeup (despite being the new face of Bobbi Brown cosmetics).
So why was Holmes there? Is she really that bored now that "Dead Accounts" is over? Well, it turns out that the lead prosecutor in the case against Hang Bin Li, a Chinese immigrant accused of violently shaking his 2-month-old daughter Annie to death in 2007, is one of the star's pals, Leigh Bishop. “She was there supporting her friend who is the prosecuting DA," Holmes' rep told Page Six.

Holmes’ Wednesday afternoon was much less intense. After borough-hopping back to Manhattan, she brought her 6-year-old daughter to the Hudson River Greenway for a playdate. Both mother and daughter wore matching navy puffy coats to stay warm during the chilly outing – and Holmes smiled watching her daughter navigate the slide like a pro.
